Please add strike/del support to the editor RRS feed

  • Hi,

    Sometimes bad advice finds its way into a reply, but you don't want to edit the post and simply remove it because then some context would be lost with it.  I think that using the HTML <strike> or HTML5 <del> tags is the best solution.

    It looks like the new forum UI uses HTML5, so I tried editing the raw HTML of my post, adding the <del> tag around some text, but it shows up as literal text instead of strike-through text.

    <del>For example, after posting this I'll edit the post and wrap this line of text with <del></del> tags.  I expect this line of text to have a line running through it, but as you can see it doesn't. </del>

    <strike>And just for the sake of completeness, I've added <strike></strike> around this line of text.</strike>

    I forgot to also test the <s></s> tag, so I've wrapped this line with them.

    Thanks,
    Dave
